As unique as it is diverse, this Gibson Custom Les Paul Korina Tribute solidbody electric guitar gives you a massive range of incredible guitar tone. It all starts with the Les Paul Korina Tribute's solid korina body - a butterscotch-colored tonewood that gives you the sound of top-shelf mahogany.

If you're ready to get creative, then it's time to get your Gibson Custom Les Paul Korina Tribute electric guitar from Sweetwater!

Gibson Custom Les Paul Korina Tribute Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Beautiful Korina body provides you with balanced tone, warm mids, and stunning good looks
  • A trio of Gibson's BurstBucker pickups give you access to a world of humbucking tone
  • ES-5 Switchmaster electronics let you dial in any pickup combination you can think of
Beautiful Korina body provides you with balanced tone, warm mids, and stunning good looks

Both the Les Paul Korina Tribute's unique look and sound stem from its unorthodox choice of tonewoods. Back in the 1950s, a handful of guitar makers began to experiment with korina, an exotic West African tonewood. Its been a rare yet simultaneously popular choice ever since. Why? Because korina gives guitars such as the Gibson Custom Les Paul Korina Tribute a naturally rich and warm voice that's reminiscent of top-shelf mahogany. What's more the Les Paul Korina Tribute natural creme brulee coloring makes it one of the most eye-catching guitars you're likely to run across.

A trio of Gibson's BurstBucker pickups give you access to a world of humbucking tone

Originally designed to give you the sound of an original PAF humbucker, the selection of BurstBucker series Alnico pickups Gibson Custom loaded in their Les Paul Korina Tribute guitar gives you three widely different tones. The extra-hot BurstBucker 3 at the Les Paul Korina Tribute's bridge, for instance, gives you the sensitive response of a traditional overwound PAF. On the other hand, the BurstBucker 1 at the neck brings out the smooth and mellow characteristics you need for pulling off leads.

ES-5 Switchmaster electronics let you dial in any pickup combination you can think of

Killer pickups and great natural sound don't mean a thing, if you don't have an electronics system with the flexibility you need. When Gibson introduced the ES-5 Switchmaster guitar, with its trio of humbuckers and unique pickup switching system, it instantly became known as the instrument of a thousand voices. The Les Paul Korina Tribute gives you this same unique electronics system, which allows you to select between each individual pickup, or to blend them all and use its volume knob to mix them. You're going to have a blast discovering all of the cool tones you can create with your Gibson Custom Les Paul Korina Tribute electric guitar!
